Randall G. Hulet Condensed Matter Physicist

Randall Hulet’s group investigates atoms at temperatures as low as a few nano-Kelvin, just a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero, and the strange and fascinating effects of quantum mechanics that alter normal atomic behavior in those conditions. Hulet and his group have used laser cooling and atom trapping techniques to explore this exotic regime of matter, investigating ultracold atom collisions, Bose-Einstein condensation, and pairing of atomic Fermi gases. Their current interest lie in the realization of fundamental models of condensed matter using ultracold atoms confined by optical lattices and in the presence of disordered potentials, as well as the study of few-body physics of bosons with resonant interactions.
